Humans are more inclined to tell tales of woe than tales of victory.

This is an evolutionary advantage, as the more tales of woe you hear, the more likely you are to avoid the spaces that nurture them.

This worked well in a world where information was scarce, with a high barrier for access.

However, in a world where information is ubiquitous, tales of woe now do more to paralyze than trigger action.

Which is why the most effective people spend more time curating their information sources.
